The Food Wrap Solution
Once upon a time, our parents and grandparents learned to use journal paper to protect fruits and vegetables. The progress came fast and then they learned to carry their foods in plastics bags. The next step in our development was the advent of plastic film, a magic solution to the problem.
This magic solution became a big source of plastic pollution that fills our environment with no recycling material. Now is our turn to change the course of history and find other alternatives for cover and keeping food fresh and protected.
The Alternative for Cling Film
Good clingfilm alternatives are the biodegradable, reusable Beeswax Wraps. They are made of a sheet of organic cotton covered with beeswax. In the beginning, they are a bit stiff but the warmth of our hands is enough for the material to become soft, malleable and sticky. The Beeswax wraps come in different sizes and prints what make the product very “fashion”.
